A rainy evening kept Burbank Unified School District candidates in their homes Tuesday night, waiting for results that by press time had not been tallied. Though candidates didn't make it to City Hall, where the votes were being tallied, the rain didn't keep voters from dropping off their ballots, City Clerk Margarita Campos said. Candidate Roland Armstorff actually showed up briefly at City Hall Tuesday evening but went home to await results when he found out officials hadn't started counting ballots yet. "It turned out to be kind of a boring evening," he said.

Casting calls end this month for the Fox Network film-based reality show, which premieres live on May 22.

The first round of Burbank’s municipal elections is through, and there are six candidates left standing. Mayor Dave Golonski and Councilman David Gordon will face off in the April 14 runoff election against four challengers — Jess Talamentes, Elise Stearns-Niesen, Kimberly Jo and Garen Yegparian — while Board of Education incumbents Larry Applebaum and Debbie Kutka have secured their seats on the dais again. Since Golonski and Gordon were the top two vote-getters in Tuesday’s primary, they appear poised to take two of the three open seats in April.

Josh Kleinbaum For 90 minutes Friday, three congressional hopefuls took aim at Adam Schiff in the first of three debates between the four candidates for the 29th District seat in the House of Representatives, painting the incumbent as a career politician who supports war and helps expand the scope of government. Schiff did not take the bait, focusing on his record and his plans for the future instead of giving direct answers to accusations from his challengers.

It was a disappointing 2010 campaign for the two area boys' water polo programs. Burbank High was able to secure the fourth and final CIF Southern Section Division V playoff spot from the Pacific League, but fell in the wild-card round against La Salle, 10-6. Burroughs wasn't able to earn a postseason spot, as the Indians finished sixth in league. The Indians did show promise late in the season, however, as they fell to the Bulldogs, 9-6, in the regular-season finale and almost defeated Arcadia, 8-7, in the consolation round of the Pacific League Tournament.

Fresh off the special election for the 43rd Assembly District in which Democrat Mike Gatto was projected to win, voters now have roughly four months to prepare for yet another ballot to decide who will fulfill the full two-year term. When the election in November is all said and done, voters will have been asked to cast their votes four times for the same seat in about six months — a process that some stakeholders have said contributes to voter fatigue and confusion. The election also had to compete with the Lakers' championship series game.

Jim Riggio BURROUGHS HIGH -- Carolyn Brown doesn't like the idea of putting pressure and demands on herself. No stranger to the CIF Masters track and field meet, having raced in the 800-meter event the past two years, the Burroughs High junior is taking a relaxed approach as she attempts to return to the California State meet. Brown, who won the CIF Southern Section Division II title as a freshman, finished third last season, and was second in last weekend's final, when she finished in 2 minutes 15.71 seconds.

Irma Lemus MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- With maps of the city in hand, Burbank High School students set out to collect canned food and other items for needy families.
